The paper analyzes differences in economic conditions of Spanish regions and theirevolution from the point of view of growth theory, emphasizing the convergence process.The characterization of this process varies depending on the type of data we use: thetraditional source, elaborated since 1955 by Banco Bilbao-Vizcaya, and the more recent onesupplied by the Instituto Nacional de Estadística since 1980 as Contabilidad Regional. Afterdescribing the basic elements of the convergence equation, the paper concentrates on the roleplayed by the productive structure in establishing regional differences, with special referenceto the weight of the agricultura1 sector and to the role of public capital in conditionalconvergence. A conditional and non-conditional convergence equation is estimated for the17 Spanish regions, for the 1955-1991 period. El trabajo analiza las diferencias en las condiciones económicas de las ComunidadesAutónomas españolas y la evolución de las mismas desde la perspectiva de la teoría delcrecimiento, concentrándose en el proceso de convergencia. Comienza advirtiendo que la visión que se desprende de este proceso es distinta según cual sea la información estadística utilizada: la tradicional, proporcionada desde 1955 por el Banco de Bilbao, o la más reciente suministrada por el INE, desde 1980, en su Contabilidad Regional. Tras discutir e ilustrar los elementos básicos de la ecuación de convergencia el trabajo se concentra en el papel jugado por la estructura productiva en las diferencias regionales, con especial referencia al peso del sector agrícola, y el capital público en la convergencia condicionada, estimándose la ecuación de convergencia, condicionada y no condicionada, para las 17 Comunidades Autónomas en el periodo 1955-1991.
